The church organ was specially built and installed for St. Andrew's by Preston Boomer in 1960, with the help of his high school students, and his friend ,the late Bill Reed, who was a professional organ builder. Boomer spent his inheritance from his grandfather, Preston H. Boomer, to buy the pipes for the organ, and it is dedicated to his memory.
The organ of St. Andrew's Parish Church has seven ranks. The original three rank design (in 1958) by Bill Reid, was expanded to seven ranks by The Boom (Preston Boomer) and his students in 1973.
Notice that the console, to the left of the American flag, is very
compact. Our pipe organ does not take up a large amount of
valuable space. But what a lovely sound it does
